If you do have a standard RANS seat with bottle cage fittings, as RG suggested above, and if those threaded holes have not been accessed, you would have to make holes in the seat fabric to get to them - a soldering iron works well for this. This is true for the RANS SlingMesh seat, too.
Hanging a LWB across the back of a car can be problematic, depending on the length of the bike and the width of the car. Opinions will vary on this. Have never tried it with my V3. Removing the front wheel can help.
A tandem length rack would be needed to carry an XStream on a roof rack.
I would like to try an XStream, too. With 26 inch wheels. Haven't read of any deficits of the early XS26 models. Half price sounds nice.
